There can be some odd characters out there in the world of online dating. Oftentimes you have to use common sense when deciding when to meet someone.
I use these guidelines to decide when it is appropriate to meet someone:
1. E-mail at least a few weeks on the online site you're using.
2. After you feel there is a connection and you feel comfortable, go ahead and text each other for at least a week.
3. Set up a time and place to meet. ALWAYS meet in a public place and make it casual like coffee or drinks.
4. If the initial meeting goes well then set up a date.
Always trust your gut when online dating. If he or she seems too good to be true…they probably are!
Happy dating, and be safe!
